Sewer construction that started today will delay traffic on N Killingsworth Street between N Interstate and N Concord avenues. During daytime construction hours, Killingsworth is a one-way eastbound street between Interstate and Concord. The westbound traffic lane of Killingsworth is closed at Interstate. Instead of travelling west on Killingsworth from Interstate, vehicles are detouring around the construction area.
Motorists and bicyclists should expect delays in the work area on N Killingsworth during construction hours, 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. This phase of the project will take about one week to complete.
The work is part of the $6.5 million dollar Overlook Sewer Replacement Project to replace or repair about 17,000 feet of sewer pipes in poor condition.
